On Saturday afternoon, Chico Police Department officers were dispatched to the ampm store located on Esplanade.

The police addressed a report that an AG Security Officer was involved in a physical fight with the subject that took place on the property.

The subject was identified as 34-year-old Jeremy Underwood, a homeless man, and officers ordered him to the ground.

Underwood backed into the business to avoid police contact while ignoring orders but was able to be detained without an incident taking place, the news release said. Initially, he provided a false name during the arrest but his true identity was learned later.

Underwood was arrested for resisting arrest and providing false information.
